things dictated in part by china first, alcoa, the old aluminum corporation of america and on tuesday afternoon, and i think that while the company is operating surprisingly well, earnings will be hurt by high-chinese aluminum. they don't want to set down their plants, because it would layoff huge numbers of of people over there, and they are afraid to do that. alcoa sells very hot marks, aero, automobile, and gas turbines, and don't forget because of its recycling qualities they work in cans. and they make the beautiful aluminum ipad skid. the aluminum in construction is awful. alcoa is hard pressed to get to the mid teens. where it would be if china weren't producing 5 1/2 million tons of aluminum it doesn't need. we'll also hear from yum brands. it's as american as kentucky fried chicken. judging by the slowdown in nike shoe sales, the colonel probably didn't sell a lot of chicken. kfc doesn't taste like a nike sneaker, but it's about people's moods. i bet it isn't bad. i like yum in the lower 60s. wednesday morning, earnings from cost come they got me thinking i'm too negative abo
